CUMBERLAND CO., Ill. - A 19-year-old woman from Avon, Ohio, was injured in a rollover accident late this morning outside of Greenup, and she blamed a "steering issue" for the mishap.

Illinois State Police said the accident occurred at 11:52 a.m. this morning on Interstate 70 two miles west of Greenup.

Kaytlin L. Starwalt, driving a silver 2003 Toyota Tacoma truck, was eastbound on I-70 when she reportedly experienced an issue with the truck's steering.

The truck veered to the left of the roadway, entering the median, then entered back upon the roadway, where Starwalt overcorrected, resulting in the truck again entering back on to the median. This maneuver caused the vehicle to roll over on its top.

Starwalt was transported to St. Anthony's Hospital in Effingham with unspecified injuries.

She was later cited with Improper Lane Usage.
